More About the Author

My name is Penny Estelle and I was an elementary school secretary for 21 years. I heard every excuse and story in the book when kids would be sent to the principal. I promised myself when I retired I would write stories about kids and that is just what I did.

I am retired with my wonderful husband and we live on a fifty-four acre ranch in Arizona on solar and wind. I am the "greenest" person and I know, even if I don't want to be!

I am so excited to have stories out for kids and adults. Hike up Devil's Mountain, A Float Down the Canal, and five stories in The Wickware Sagas - Billy Cooper's Awesome Nighmare, Ride of a Lifetime, Flash to the Past, Bumped Back in Time, and soon to be released, Riches to Rags! All for the tween in your life

I also write under P. A. Estelle. These are stories for the older crowd. At What Price?, Her Cracked Heart, and Dugan's Creek.

Though, a few of my stories are light romance, I would love to take a crack at erotic stories, but I told my hubby I would probably have to go have a few affairs...you know, for research!!!!

When Andy disobeys his mom and sneaks into the basement of a condemned old house that is to be torn down, he trips and finds a box under an old cabinet. Enter the Crew brothers-Jason, 12 year old bully and 10- year old Danny. When Jason tries to take the box away from Andy, he accidentally ends up as a toad, with a little help from the strange box.

The boys must hike up Devil's Mountain to get turn Jason back to a boy.

The author does a great job making the reader see the boys' trip up the mountain in her/his head. You feel the characters' dread, fear, awe, surprise and the anxiety of a few close calls as the elements attempt to hamper the boys from making it to their destination. Along the way the boys learn to help and trust each other. Happy and surprising ending is very age appropriate. I would recommend this short novella to kids age 10-13.

I received a free copy of this book in return for my review.

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 9 years, 11 months

SPOILER ALERT:

Ten-year-old Andy Thompson's mother tells him not to go to the house next door because it is old and dangerous, but he sneaks out and goes in the house next door where he finds a red magic stick. Two boys named, Jason and Danny, go to the house as well. While the boys are there, Jason and Andy get into a fight over the magic stick. While they are fighting, Andy told Jason that he was acting like a toad and then Jason turned into a toad!! Danny and Andy try to find a way to turn Jason back into a boy, but nothing works. Danny comes up with an idea to hike up to Devil's Mountain. Andy does not want to do this, but Danny tells him that he has to go. While hiking up Devil's Mountain, strange things start to happen.

My favorite part of this book is when the boys were hiking up Devil's Mountain and they start to get hungry. Danny had gummy bugs and since Jason was a toad, his tongue went flying so he could eat the gummy bugs. This is my favorite part because it was so funny! I think that anyone that likes funny and scary books should read this book. I think that it is best for 3rd-6th graders. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

For the first time, I was thrilled to have my son glued to the computer. This was his first experience with an Ebook, and it was definitely a success. For days all he could talk about was Hike Up Devils Mountain and what was happening in the book. He was so excited about it that my younger daughter insisted we read it to her. This book has been enjoyable for the entire family!

When 10-year-old Andy approaches the condemned house at the edge of the neighborhood, he knows he's asking for trouble. Not only did his mother forbid him to go to the house due to be razed, but also everyone he knows talks about it being the former home of a wicked witch who has since moved to the top of Devil's Mountain. But Andy isn't about to let some sissy warning from his mother or idle town gossip keep him from investigating the house. A simple premise, but author Penny Estelle treats it in a delightful manner that will have even adults eager to find out what happens next.

Author Estelle doesn't hesitate: her book opens right in the middle of the action as readers see Andy on the verge of entering the basement of the dilapidated home from an external entrance. As he investigates suspicious-looking boxes and a furnace missing its door, twelve-year-old Jason and his younger brother, Danny, follow him inside the basement. Jason doesn't hesitate to taunt Andy about being scared; as a new kid in town and the elder son of wealthy parents, Jason tries to exert his superiority over Andy.

Andy, however, isn't about to back down, and the two boys begin to scuffle. Just when the fight comes to its climax, though, Jason disappears, seemingly into thin air--and Andy and Jason's younger brother are left to decide how to get Jason back. The two decide the only way to bring Jason back is by visiting the so-called witch on Devil's Mountain, and that's where the adventure begins.

This short book for young readers packs quite a punch--author Penny Estelle doesn't back down from including twists and turns at every possible chance, and as a result readers will be flipping pages impatiently to know how it all ends. Estelle's prose targets her audience well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review it. This was a great short read. The author gets you right into the story right from the beginning. Disobeying parents has consequences and this story is no different. Andy disobeys and goes into an old house where he finds a "treasure"? He then meets two bullies, Jason and Danny. Their journey together, both before and after going up Devils Mountain was well developed by the author bringing in suspense and intrigue, changing their lives forever. The boys lives will never be the same after their journey up the mountain and meeting the old woman.
Who is this woman? Why is she on top of Devils Mountain? What changed the boys? Hope you read the book and find out.

This is the first book I read by Penny Estelle and look forward to reading more of her books.
